Providence, RI (WPRI/CNN) - It's a concert more than 30 years in the making.
People who kept tickets for a canceled 1979 "The Who" performance now have new tickets to hold onto.
Thirty-three years ago, the mayor of Providence, Rhode Island canceled the concert after 11 people were killed in a stampeded before a Who show in Cincinnati.
Now, The Who is honoring those old tickets purchased for $14, and redeeming them with seats for an upcoming concert.
"Definitely with the history, it's just a really fun story. I think. And I think it's great that the Dunkin Donuts center is doing this," said one ticket holder.
"I never even thought this day would come, and it finally paid off," said another ticket holder.
It won't be another 32 years before fans get to see the band perform live.
The new concert date is set for February 23, 2013.
